Hermitage coach honored by Redskins

The Washington Redskins this week named Hermitage head football coach Patrick Kane the Redskins High School Coach of the Week for the week of Oct. 3.

The Redskins High School Coach of the Week program is designed to recognize and reward excellence in high school football coaching.

Kane is in his eleventh season at Hermitage High School and has an overall record of 93-19 at Hermitage. He has been coaching football for more than 20 years and has won Colonial District Coach of the Year five times, Central Region Coach of the Year two times, Richmond Times Dispatch Metro Coach of the Year five times and served as a NFL Summit Representative in 2002. The Panthers are currently 4- 0 and ranked sixth in the Maxpreps poll for the state of Virginia.

“Coach Kane leads by example. He works extremely hard to make sure his student-athletes are doing the right things on and off the field," said Hermitage Athletic Director Chris Rollison. "He cares about his student-athletes during the season and after the season. He follows up with his student-athletes to ensure they are taking the proper classes and staying on track with classes that will prepare them for college and post-secondary life.”

Off the field, Kane is an intricate part of the Hermitage Athletic Booster club’s NFL youth camp held every June at Hermitage. Kane and his staff also attend practices for the local area youth football teams and assist in teaching youngsters fundamental football skills. Kane also has coached in the Virginia High School All-Star game in Hampton.

Each week during the 2011 high school football season, the Redskins will select one area high school head coach as the Redskins High School Coach of the Week. The selection is based on the coach's continuing commitment towards promoting youth football, developing motivated student-athletes, his overall community involvement and overall team performance and record. Each of the coaches chosen throughout the high school season will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Youth Football Fund to their football program and a framed certificate signed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan and Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen.
